Qualitative research methods are growing in importance and in use amongst nurses and other health researchers. Qualitative Health Research showcases the cutting-edge developments and seminal studies in research practice and research theory in this field. At the same time these volumes detail the long and fascinating history of the use of qualitative approaches to the study of health and illness, providing a complete map of the field. The four volumes focus on 'Patients and Disease', 'Health Professionals and their Work', 'Healthcare Organisations' and 'Patient Experiences'.

This will be this first major work in SAGE's new series 'Fundamentals of Applied Research'.
